Program 2019

Torarin and Svalin live with their parents in Akkarfjord, way up in the north of Norway. When the siblings want a horse for riding, their parents buy two Bactrian camels for them instead. The exotic animals need to be trained, and the family soon discovers that camel training is not for amateurs.

They take on an expedition to Mongolia, hoping to find a professional trainer who will accept an invitation to train their camels in Arctic Norway. Deep into the Goby desert, they actually find a candidate. But they are not prepared for Mongolian training methods.

THE ARCTIC CAMELS is a true adventure film for the whole family.
